Minnesota Monster

SzdelgarJoshua Delger, a graduate research assistant in the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences at South Dakota State University in Brookings, S.D., one of the top universities if you like to hunt and fish as reported on recently in Outdoor Life, does his best to take this photo contest to new artistic levels.

Great shot, Joshua. Here he poses with a huge Minnesota trophy that he took while hunting in the southcentral region of the state. It tugged the scales at a hefty 23 pounds and the beard stretched 10 3/4 inches.
